The On1on

2013 –

Dan Schultz and I created The On1on, a parody of The Onion populated entirely by real news. It received 40,000 unique views on its first day, and was featured all over the internet on sites like Gawker. It continues to receive significant traffic despite being completely automated and frequently unfunny.

Here’s the story behind its creation, as documented by Brian Janosch at Cultivated Wit.
